June’s big CEO shakeups include new CEOs at Toshiba America Business Solutions, Cybrary and Exabeam, plus executive changes at Google, Intel and Microsoft.
In June, Intel announced a major restructuring of several of its departments. As part of the changes, the company appointed Hong Hao, the former head of Samsung’s North American foundry business, to the new role of corporate vice president of worldwide business development for Intel Foundry Services. The new role will have Hao lead “the formulation of IFS business strategies and execution of worldwide customer engagement plans to grow Foundry revenue and customer base,” according to an internal memo.
Nick McKeown also joined Intel in June to lead the Network and Edge Group split from the Data Platform Group. An internal memo said the leaders of the groups being folded into the Network and Edge Group — Dan Rodriguez, Tom Lantzsch and Hong Hou — will report to McKeown. McKeown was previously a part-time senior fellow at Intel, which he joined following the company’s 2019 acquisition of his company, Barefoot Networks.
